Walking Dead: Episode 3 due in August

Friday, 6th July 2012 04:36 GMT By Brenna Hillier

TellTale has apologised for the delay on the recently-launched second episode of The Walking Dead and promised the next entry will drop next month.

“Although we can’t give you an exact date at this time, we can say that episode three will be ready in the middle of August, and that we and our partners will do all that we can to release all platforms and regions as close together as possible,” TellTale said in a blog post.

The developer thanked fans for their patience during delays to the second instalment’s release; it was good two months between the first two episodes, and European PlayStation 3 owners had to wait an extra week on top of that.

“Our goal from day one has been to deliver your game episodes as quickly as possible, and where we can, simultaneously across all platforms and regions,” TellTale wrote.

“We’ve been working closely with our phenomenally supportive partners to try to make this a reality. We will continue to work on this and furthermore, we will strive to improve our communication with you so that you know what’s happening. Please rest assured that we are doing all we can to get your game episodes to you as quickly as possible.”

The first episode of The Walking Dead sold over a million copies.

Thanks, GameTrailers.

    sigh this all translates to me as “we’re skipping the july release of episode 3 and delaying episode 3 until mid-august.”

    Seeing how they just released the last episode a week ago it makes sense that it would be in August especially since certification for the episodes can take a week or two.

    Been thinking about picking this up, but how is the game play?

    @3 It’s pretty much been lauded as one of the best adventure games in years.

    The characters are great, the animation is top class, the art style is perfect, and the approach to scares and changing story are both genuinely tense and exciting. If you have *any* vested interest in these kind of games, you’d be mad to miss out on it.

    Everything that #4 states: game’s really cool, that’s no action game, of course, so don’t expect THAT kind of gameplay… Just finished Episode 2, and have to say it’s even better than the first!! Go on, you won’t regret it!

    Yeah, I was really surprised by this one. Not much interest either in the series or these kind of games usually, but these are damn good games.

    The gameplay is not particularly good to be honest.. BUT it’s not a game in that sense, it’s more of a deeply-engrossing interactive comic. The adventure gameplay elements are quite tedious but somewhat necessary to pad out the story and decision making. It’s not a traditional game but it is very, very good and worth playing.

    Its a point and click adventure just like all of Tell Tale games.
